How to use "Simony" in context?
The history of simony is a long and conflicted one. On the one hand, simony is the offering of gifts to gain favor with ecclesiastical leaders in order to advance one's career or religious beliefs. On the other hand, simony can also refer to the act of buying or selling ecclesiastical offices. In either case, simony is seen as an unjust practice that can corrupt Church leadership and hinder the spiritual development of its believers.
Despite its negative reputation, simony has been part of Church practice for centuries. The Church has always had to fight against political and financial powers that might try to use their position to gain advantages for themselves.
